Stay immersed in the dive life without getting wet

Stuck at home due to COVID-19?

Worried about getting your scuba fix if you are working from home and don’t want to take off your PJs? We’ve compiled a list of suggestions for keeping yourself immersed in the dive life.

Start a PADI or DAN course via eLearning

You can get a head start on many dive courses with the eLearning now! Why not get the academics out of the way so you’re ready to jump into training as soon as the weather warms up?

Become a Citizen Scientist

Learn how you can help make a difference on your next dive. There are many useful online resources and apps to make your dives count!

Some of our favorite ocean reads

Here are just a few of our favorite books for getting a dive fix when we’re nowhere near water:

  • “The World Beneath: The Life and Times of Unknown Sea Creatures and Coral Reefs” by Richard Smith
  • “Eye of the Shoal: A Fishwatcher’s Guide to Life, the Ocean and Everything” by Helen Scales
  • “The Fragile Edge: Diving and Other Adventures in the South Pacific” by Julia Whitty
  • “Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness” by Peter Godfrey-Smith
  • “Squid Empire: The Rise and Fall of the Cephalopods” by Danna Staaf
  • “Sex, Drugs and Sea Slime: The Oceans’ Oddest Creatures and Why They Matter” by Ellen Prager

Ready to escape the house for a quick visit to the shop?

If you are ready to venture forth and get some face time with your fellow divers, come on by and let us help you with any of the following.

Bring your dive gear in to be serviced

Do you know what the service schedule is for your equipment? We can service many brands in-house, and if we can’t, we can make sure your gear gets where it needs to go.

  • Regulator (first stage + second stages including octos and safe seconds) – Most manufacturers now require you to have full overhauls every other year with annual inspections in between. That means bring it in every year!
  • BCD – Bring it in for inspection every year.
  • Dive computers – Batteries should be replaced every 18 months. That goes for the wireless pressure transmitters too!
  • Drysuits – Bring it in every year for an inspection.

Join us for a classroom-based course

Not all scuba training has to happen in the water! Here are just some of the courses you can take in the shop without having to get your hair wet. Most of these are offered every month.
